I currently have a Lafayette Martian Meteorite specimen listed on eBay. This
is a fairly large fragment compared to the ultra small specks that were
listed in the past. Perhaps 20 or 30 times larger. Only 30 some grams of
this ultra rare Martian are available to collectors. A total of 767 grams
are in three museums and I don't think any trades have taken place.
Lafayette is a rarer Nakhalite type similar to the fall in Nakhla, Egypt
that is alleged to have hit a dog.

Here is a link to the auction: http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/almittmet

My best to all.
